Quick Summary of Bridgerton~

During dating season all the eligible bachelors and bachelorettes are here looking for a future spouse. Daphne Bridgerton is the primrose of the season, complete with royalty blessings. Meanwhile, Simon Basset takes the title of biggest catch since he’s completely determined to remain a bachelor all his days. The two strike a mutually beneficial deal where they pretend to be in love. But who knows, it may work better than they think…

Meanwhile, Lady Whistledown seems to know everything about everyone. However, no one seems to know a thing about her. Consequently, best friends Eloise and Penelope are on the case. Although, Penelope may have her own issues since she’s an eligible bachelorette. If that weren’t enough her family is undergoing scandal from multiple directions.

Another subplot is Mariana. Although she was supposed to participate in the dating season, her pregnancy may cost her future and potential love. Will she prevail?

Final Thoughts on Bridgerton

Although I’m never a huge fan of watching drama or romance, Bridgerton is pretty good. If the romance or drama was annoying, I could focus on watching the mystery unfold.
